#MWF14 Mothers Grimm

This post was written by Lisa from Kew Library. 

This session with Cassandra Golds and Danielle Wood looked at the power and role of fairytales and how they tell us about love but also reveal the dark side of life - hatred, jealousy, poverty and betrayal thus using the language of fairytales to talk about the profound. Cassandra's latest book Pureheart is about what it means to love and is inspired by Rapunzel and the Arthurian legends. Danielle's latest is Mothers Grimm in which she refashions four traditional tales and transforms them into black comedies in the present.
